Join us for an opportunity to connect with other siblings of people with disabilities and those who care about siblings. We are excited to again partner with and hold the SLN Conference in conjunction with AAIDD (American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities). Hear from national experts on the latest in sibling services and supports, learn about new research initiatives, and participate in sibling and disability advocacy efforts. You will have an opportunity to learn about resources, share stories, network and gain insight on sibling experiences.

UPDATE! The Galt House Hotel is completely sold out during the SLN Conference. Thankfully, there are many more hotel options in Downtown Louisville.
